A bookmark is a snapshot of the player's current state. This includes information such as where it is playing on the disc, and which audio and subpictures streams are selected. The most common use for bookmarks is to allow the user to stop playback, and even shut down the computer, and come back later to continue viewing the disc right where he or she left off, with all settings just as they were before, avoiding any mandatory playback screens such as the FBI warning. Without using a bookmark, these screens would have to be replayed each time the graph is restarted.

Only one bookmark can be saved at any given time. When you call SaveBookmark, the old bookmark is overwritten.
